|PLaNeTZoo - 2 Humans In A Cage With Their Everything Box [NTT049] - PLaNeTZoo|
Samuel Glaser (Zoogoo), who's based in Florida, and Anthony Colas (Planet Aldol) from France have been putting their energy in an intense journey through organic spectra, while still encompassing a wide range of emotions. Tapping into the subconscious by exposing the listener to a constantly morphing world of living organisms is something PlanetZoo has gotten especially good at. The sparse instrumental passages contribute greatly to this album in a sense that they put a more emotional image to t...
